WILL

WILL

AND IN DEATH THERE IS A PREGNANT PAUSE…

LIFE STOPS, IT GESTATES LIKE AN EMBRYO,

SITTING JUST ABOVE YOUR HEART,

WAITING FOR THE RIGHT TIME

TO REAWAKEN.

 

WHEN ALL YOUR LIFE IS INVESTED

IN THE DEPARTED…

LIFE HAS NO DIRECTION TO FOLLOW.

GESTATION IS HARD AND LONG…

FRAUGHT WITH THE DANGERS.

 

IT TOOK THE DANGER AND DOUBLED IT.

LIKE A CESAREAN, LIFE WAS ON THE BRINK,

IT COULD HAVE GONE EITHER WAY…

WORRIED LOOKS FROM THE KNOWING,

AS THE BUZZER RANG FOR HELP.

 

LIFE STOPS. AND THE SHOUT: CLEAR!

AND THE STONE IS LIFTED FROM THE HEART,

IT BREAKS FREE… AND BREATHES…

AND LIFE IS NOT THE PAST

IT IS THE PRESENT.

 

AND IN THE PRESENT, LIFE LIVES…

OBVIOUS REALLY DON’T YOU THINK?

NOT SO OBVIOUS IN THE PROCESS,

YOU HAVE TO FIND LIFE…

AND A REASON FOR IT!

 

DALE ‘M’   WE WITH ‘J’
